Veteran Reggae artiste Luciano is currently cancelling his shows that were booked for the United States in September after his visa and work permit was recently revoked.

The “Ulterior Motive” was denied entry to the United States last weekend by law enforcement officials. According to the Reggae “Messenger” his work permit was cancelled after a search by customs officers found a herbal medicine, which they say contains extracts of cannabis.

“I regret to announce that whilst crossing the border from Canada into America by air on August 25th, 2016, I underwent an abnormal interrogation during which my personal hand luggage was searched. During the search, a mixture that I normally use as a herb medicine for my throat was found and after numerous tests it was claimed to be illegal because it contained cannabis extracts. The herbal liquid was a very small amount (less than one gramme), but as a result my visas were revoked and I was denied entry into the US,” the singer explained.

“Please note that this will not affect any bookings that I have in countries anywhere else in the world, apart from North America. So please keep the faith… Jah Bless,” he continued.
Meanwhile, Luciano’s manager, Sonia Sterling says his bookings in other countries remain and they’re currently working to fix the situation.
